Safari contacted me to shoot her grandmothers beautiful jewelry pieces she acquired. Because Safari is also a model, I wanted to keep a very high end look that was fashion forward but classic. I pulled this dramatic collared Calvin Klein suit out of my wardrobe closet and presented the concept of fashioned portraits that would present these pieces in the best lighting.
I will be using a mix of constant and strobe lighting today with my gridded beauty dish to keep a dramatic flow with my shadows and maintain control of my light fall.
I can’t wait till she shows her family the way she chose to embrace these pieces! LIGHT!
